Can anyone identify this screening tree/hedge growing in the Adelaide plains, South Australia? Any family or clade suggestions will help!

I'd like to propagate it next to the fences in our own backyard because it looks hardy and demonstrates excellent foliage density for screening.

Gets thin here at 3m (9'10") tall, but the tips are above 3m. – Lisa Oct 19 '11 at 1:00
Do you think it could be a Syzygium specifically Lilly Pilly? – Mike Perry Oct 19 '11 at 3:54

Is it a pittosporum - possibly Pittosporum Screenmaster? I looked on the web and found a number of pictures of trees looking very much like these trees eg check out this link.
